A flush mounted light fixture is mounted to a ceiling. The fixture hugs close to the ceiling, usually without any gap between the ceiling and the light shade. A close-to-ceiling fixture can work well as a central light fixture, ideal in smaller rooms and hallways where there is less head-room. A flush-mount fixture provides maximum head-room, though tend to be less decorative than a semi-flush fixture. These lights are hardwired and must be installed electrically, operated by a wall switch. They produce good ambient light, although a larger room may need more than one.
Informal and comfortable, this relaxed style accentuates an airy and unpretentious living space, evoking the feeling of a permanent beach cottage vacation. Casual Lighting uses clean and simple lines, subtle curves, natural textures, and decorative glass for a subtle elegance that doesn’t overwhelm the senses.
Fixtures closely attached to a ceiling tend to produce more ambient background light. They might be used to support a more central light fixture or as a less elaborate central light. They can produce strong light near to where they are placed. A close-to-ceiling light can flood a room with ambient light.
Being fairly low-profile, flush mounts are often found in smaller or narrower rooms. They work well in a hallway, bathroom or smaller bedroom. They can also work well in a basement or rooms with less headroom.
Being flush-to-the-ceiling, these lights will radiate light outward and downward. They can light a large area, but you should also consider wall lights or lamps to fill out the edges or corners of the room, and to provide softer light for more relaxed situations.
Attaches to a flat ceiling. Could potentially be mounted to a sloped/vaulted ceiling. The flush-mount canopy area hides the electrical installation.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the flush-mount fixture into the building's electrical supply.
There are four spokes at the top of the shade, which means it won’t work if you have a typical cheap light fixture with three bulbs. Works OK with two bulbs, but just barely.
Not only is this kit SO nice, when the delivery service crushed the box beyond recognition, the replacement was on it's way within a day. Above and beyond kindness from the company. Couldn't recommend more highly, both LampsUSA and this kit.
Exceptional product... high quality and well designed. Easy installation. Highly recommended. LampUSA consistently has excellent customer service, great pricing, and fast delivery.
Worth all five stars!
Exactly as ordered, came with everything I needed.
